Another Busy Weekend

Memorial Day Weekend 2012

My baby sister graduated from college.  Where does the time go?

Long pants in 90 degree weather? Check.  Shirt on backwards? Check.  Wearing Mom’s flip flops just because they have polka dots, even though she can’t walk in them? Check. Backpack on back that contains a toy baby bottle, a hair brush and a pair of bedroom slippers? Check.  Let Mom or Dad talk her out of any of that? Absolutely-completely-utterly-unthinkable.

Walked into Lowe’s to find concrete stain for our front porch facelift. Found the exact product in the exact color we needed on the mistint shelf for $4. Uh-huh.  That’s right.  Score one for the home team.

How do you know when it’s time to harvest your rhubarb?  Not really sure, but figured if it was twice as tall as my 16 month old, it was big enough.  Looks like I’ll be whipping up some cherry rhubarb jam this week.

Spent a lot of time outdoors this weekend communing with nature and working on the yard.  Saw lots of birds, a fat brown toad, some fairly large spiders, way too many mosquitoes, and this cute little guy who had found a crevice in one of our boulders to hide in.  Alethea wanted to pet him, but insisted that she put on her gardening gloves first.

Hope you all had a great weekend too!
